gary granada weighs in

26 June 2014

Abrera agreed with Coloma that the President “doesn’t have to explain anything.”

Simply because you are not obliged to does not mean you may not. Lalo na sa mga namumuno, ang pagkakataon na magpaliwanag ay higit na mahalaga kaysa karapatang magpasya sa isang bagay. It is in those grand opportunities, those rare times when people are eager to hear from their decision makers, that leaders are able to rally people behind and around their supposed social vision. Sayang sir, nakapag educate ka pa sana sa mga kababayan natin kung paano nga ba ikaw magdesisyon sa matuwid mong daan.

    “Sayang sir, nakapag educate ka pa sana sa mga kababayan natin kung paano nga ba ikaw magdesisyon sa matuwid mong daan.”

    Ang layo na ng inabot nitong non-issue na ito! Pati matuwid na daan dinamay na. The Noranians’ rage against the dimming of the spotlight on their idol knows no bounds. Baka mag million people march pa sila for Nora. Natatawa lang ang mga Vilmanians sa kanilang pagka OA at fanatic devotion to their idol.

      Bakit po ninyo ico-compare si Vilma sa isang Nora Aunor. Di naman siya na nominate at mas maraming internaional awards na tinamo si Nora Aunor. Kung tutuusin mas maraming “immoral issues” kay Vilma at mas grabe ang sex video niya noong kasikatan niya. Those who supports NCCA’s recommendation are based on intellectual dbates and technical review and we are not Noranians because we support such views.

      but MB, i think dito tama ang mga critics. explaining decisions is what we should expect from leaders. we can disagree or agree, but at least, we should be able to articulate reasons to be a rational society.

      the only reason not to explain is really national security; even then the media should still push as much as it legally can.

    Why the rejection? That at least deserves an explanation. Hiding behind the skirt of the law is a bit cowardly and arrogant. Is it because of moral issues, about drug use, what? no one wants to say categorically. Latest was “for national interest”. Nora Aunor is inimical to national interest? Impression tuloy she was rejected for no legitimate reason, as in “a basta, ayaw ko siya”.
